This was our first visit to SA, we drove from the airport arrived in the dark and slept on very, very comfortable bed. The room was very tasteful and spacious. This was about the only place in the town which offered a family room without trying to charge us for an extra room for our 11 year old son.

We woke up in the morning to an incredible view, a beautiful garden and the best breakfast I've eaten. What a great introduction to a country!

Shirley did the rounds at breakfast and we had no idea that she was the Mary Berry of South Africa : this explains the quality of the breakfast and so good to see an owner to a sincere interest in all their guests.

Some of the hotels in Franschoek are considerably more expensive than Fransvliet, I'd love to see their standards!

I was shocked to see the hotel had a one star review but it turns out the poster pressed 1 by mistake !

Room Tip: Some of the front rooms have slight road noise when sat in their terraces. There are rooms in the co...

Fabulous place surrounded by vineyards and restaurants, quiet and luxury.
Amazing hosts, a warm welcome and the best service - that is what we found in this beautiful place. A room with a fireplace and views of a flowered garden, stunning design, spacious bathroom. We just visited paradise.

The service, food, space, environment and landscape was awesome. Staff was also very friendly. The nights are quiet and the day are beautiful. The walk in the winyard was great, experiencing the river.

Loved everything, from the bath to breakfast.
Big rooms with a comfortable bed, huge bathroom with a bath and a shower and even two sinks! (How awesome is that! ;))
The view is amazing and the breakfast even more.
5 min drive to Franschhoek center.

We will definitely recommend.

I was celebrating my Big Birthday and it was my husband's first time in Cape Town. I found Fransvliet on Booking.com. We had a lovely time and stayed in the Chenin room. Breakfast was fabulous and we will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometres from the heart of Franschhoek.It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives and figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the evening perhaps hear the resident owls calling as they contemplate the night's hunt. Breathtaking mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last. The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail. Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay. Breakfast is an occasion, every day. Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards. Celebrate "the best meal of the day" with either a Continental or a full breakfast that will include seasonal specials. The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons. Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off. Lazy winter days are a treat too. Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace - the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine. Meander through the garden, (both indigenous and other) on your way to your suite. Something special will be flowering at all times. In season, luscious figs will be found on the trees, and the scent of lemons may be in the air too. Take an early morning walk around the farm in December. The vines will be green and laden with fruit. In July, a few burgundy coloured leaves and bare sticks have their own attraction. Soak up the 360° view, especially the powerful Simonsberg mountains. ... more   less
